My essay talks about texting and driving and how drivers need to understand the importance and impact of what this distraction does. So many deaths per year are caused by this and it just grows more as our generation gets further "addicted" to our electronic worlds. I've told about how a staged accident at our school really impacted a lot of our students, and what we are doing to change our habits with our phones. Being educated about driving safely is crucial at this time more than ever.

The Safety Needed in Driving To start this essay, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Anna Williams and I am currently a high school junior at Foothill High School, on my way to the College and Career Ready diploma. I would like to pursue my college career at UNLV and receive my Bachelor’s in the Art of Computer Science. Scholarships will allow a pathway to an amazing and fruitful college education. Driver’s education is one way we as a society have some sort of comfort when driving with others. The education that is needed to either get a permit or license is what has saved so many lives. Education for driving allows drivers and passengers to feel a sense of safety when driving. In Nevada, it is required that the person who is getting a license must drive with an adult for fifty hours. They also need to complete thirty hours of drivers ed online. The steps to reduce the number of deaths relating to driving is to not get distracted by what is going on in the car, make sure the driver feels well enough to start driving and most importantly don’t drive when intoxicated. The driver should not be distracted when driving, their main focus should be on what is going on around them outside of the car. If a driver does not feel well they are most likely not able to drive to their full ability, putting others in danger. Intoxication is the number one reason why car accidents occur. Drunk driving killed over thirty-seven thousand people in 2017. I have seen friends and family text and drive. I have also seen them not paying attention to the road but the people in the car. They can put their phones away to not be tempted and I can make sure to pay attention to the road to ensure safety. Driving a vehicle is a dangerous necessity in life that needs to be taken seriously. Without learning the rules of the road or understanding the role as a driver lives could be lost. The steps taken to ensure safety when driving should not be seen as extra steps but necessary steps.
